Synopsis

Triumph on Everest A Photobiography of Sir Edmund Hillary by Broughton Coburn

Foreword by Mingma Norbu Sherpa

Released in paperback just in time for the 50th anniversary of Hillary' s history-making climb, this exciting photobiography celebrates the extraordinary life of the New Zealand farm boy who in May 1953 became the first person known to have reached the summit of Mount Everest. With climbing partner Tenzing Norgay, the iron-willed Hillary crossed deadly icefalls, clawed his way up vertical walls, and persevered through gale-force winds until he finally stood at the top of the world. Along with this gripping adventure, readers follow the explorer' s trek to the South Pole, his quest to find the Abominable Snowman, and his continuing efforts to help the Sherpa people, without whom, Hillary is convinced, he never would have scaled Everest.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
